I have read that a lot of sports shooters prefer AF-on. Does it perform focusing better in anyway?
I never understood why people would use it
The benefits I see are;
- if the hair-trigger shutter is problematic
- save battery with no VR during focus, but VR often helps me compose and I think works better if engaged before shutter release

I would think that true single servo would give a more accurate focus than your method of press and release. Have you found similar results?
